One thing that surprises me about this magazine is that many of the issues I've read so far have short stories. This time, it is "The Druggist", which, unless I'm mistaken, is aimed at kids. The writing style is most unusual, with dashes in the words to point out pronunciation.
Also on hand are some drawings of the talent which recorded for Edison Records. This time it is Albert Campbell (whose number of listeners on last.fm is about average for such an old artist), D. Wormser (pretty much forgotten by everyone, but you can find records by him on the UCSB Cylinder Audio Archive) and M. A. Guarini (barely a trace of him on the internet. Most of the websites that mention him seem to be those websites which have a lot of pages but very little actual content).
